Finding your place in the practice of Zen and in a spiritual community is not always easy. Taking Your Seat is a program designed to orient newer members to the programs, classes, people, and volunteer opportunities available at Dharma Rain. The program offers participants an opportunity to create warm relationships with other members and become part of the temple community.
Taking Your Seat is for active members of Dharma Rain in their first few years of practice. The program begins in October and includes five meetings over the course of three months: October 3 and 17, November 7 and 21, and December 12. Zonnyo is leading this class. This is a closed class that has already begun. Taking Your Seat is offered every two years.
